Is "Character assassination" a campaign strategy for Labour?
Is this all labour has to fight Rufus with for the upcoming elections? Wow! This will not work. There is nothing new that can be said about the man that we don't know. Rufus will be campaigning strictly on his "RECORD OF PERFORMANCE" which labour cannot touch.
It will be interesting for Choiseulians to hear what it is that the Labour's candidate can bring to the table that Bousquet have not brought. Bousquet's performance in the constituency have surpassed every politician that has represented this district over the years. We dare the other side disprove this claim. Bousquet will, after the next election take Choiseul to a higher level... especially in the economic sphere. Keep your eyes peeled.
Bousquet's campaign will not be dragged down in to a mud slinging and smearing contest. No way! Bousquet has shown his worth and will maintain a standard, and the people will make the right choice.
We have also learnt that the labour's campaign team has a team of lawyers on the ground monitoring Choiseulians to have them face the courts if anyone speaks about the alleged mishap that the labour candidate had with a female. Is this aiming at silencing us Choiseulians? Are we going back to the communist days? What is there to lose, that fear must be instilled in potential voters?
Choiseulians, except during the 1997 elections campaign, have never known intimidation and this time around they will stand up.
Bousquet's campaign has always been clean and simple... never searched for big guns to assist and never went around dishing cash to get votes. This is what makes his campaign stand above the other side's... simple and local people doing simple things to achieve success.
Let's hope good sense prevails and both side demonsrate a sense competitiveness,reponsibility and respect for each other.
